[resolved] Background won't link (6 posts)

    After setting the background image to link, it won't turn into one.

    I read the forums and saw the developer version resolves this in some instances, but it didn't make a difference on my end. I also tried both full screen and normal mode, but still no luck.

    It's because the theme's elements are covering the background. Try adding the following to the active Image Set's "Custom Stylesheet" field:

    div#whitewrap {
      width: 1018px;
      margin: 0 auto;
      float: none;

    Thanks so much! That worked great.

    But the link won't open in a new window (even though the option is checked in the settings).

    Any ideas?

    I also just noticed the background color element is also clickable. Is it possible to have just the image clickable? It's not a huge issue, but that would be ideal.

    Glad it worked :)

    Regarding the link not opening in a new window, this is a known bug. A fix for it will be released soon, most likely this weekend.

    As for the background color also being clickable, that is a limitation of Background Manager, unfortunately.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Love your plugin. I've been trying to make a clickable background in JavaScript and CSS for months, but couldn't get what I was looking for. You came to the rescue! :)
